May 6 - June 4, 2011
Oregon's Botanical Landscape, an exhibition of artwork by M. Frances Stilwell, featured native plants painted in their home environments in eight ecoregions in Oregon. The exhibition was open May 6 - June 4, 2011. There was an opening reception Friday, May 6, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
Imagine what Oregon looked like 200 years ago as you explore artistic renderings of the diverse plant life which existed prior to European settlement. For 25 years, Stilwell has painted native plants throughout Oregon's eight diverse ecoregions. Many of these works were painted and researched for this new exhibition of art, science and history.
The exhibition was supported by the Corvallis Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon. and the Corvallis Environmental Center.
